Guido Guidi – In Sardegna: 1974, 2011
These two volumes encompass the complete evolution of the work of the renowned Italian photographer Guido Guidi. Made in Sardinia on two trips separated by forty years, the two books not only mark the stylistic development in the work of Guidibut also the historical shifts and changes on the remote island. The first trip was on Guidi’shoneymoon in 1974, and with a Nikon F and a FIAT 127, he made a series of black and white photographs which reflect the social and political climate of Sardinia in the post-sixties era. The second trip, in 2011 involved 3 cameras – a Hasselblad, a Deardorff 8x10 and a digital Canon – and the now well-known Guidi palette of tender, almost resigned colour.
